Village Community School requires the Application before registering for Admissions Appointments and will be conducting most appointments remotely.
School Tours will be live-streamed via Zoom. Kindergarten and Grade 1 applicants have the option of an in-person or remote child visit to the school. Applicants will be seen for 30 minutes one-on-one with a member of the Admissions Team.
Grades 2-7 Applicants will receive a reading and math assessment prior to their January 2022 Zoom appointment, where they will meet the Admissions team in small groups.
All Parent Interviews will be conducted either in-person or remotely. Families opting for an in-person interview must present proof of vaccination or a negative PCR Test 48 hours prior to the appointment (rapid tests will not be accepted). Families will meet with a member of the Admissions Team for one hour: a 30 minute interview and a 30 minute walk-around the school building.
We look forward to getting to know your family.
